Stop glorifying your problems and glorify your God.

Sometimes, we have no control over what we go through in life, however, we do have control over whether we remain a victim for the rest of our lives or become victorious through Christ. If you know someone who’s always giving you a list of their problems, always complaining, and cynical, these people are looking for hope and emotional support. They are looking for a reason to live, because all of their hope is lost to them. There’s nothing wrong with having compassion on these people, praying for them and encouraging them, but don’t stress yourself out trying to solve all of their problems. Direct them to God. There’s a danger in looking to people to pull us through, especially when we’re faced with things that we have no control over. It’s dangerous because our powers as humans, are limited, and we all fall short. So, when a person doesn’t come through like we expect, it can be devastating, if we don’t put our hope in God. We really must be careful about looking to people for validation, security and happiness. Not all attention is good attention, so be careful about how you put yourself out there. If you put yourself out there as a victim, the enemy is going to have a field day with that, and only send individuals your way who will prey on your weaknesses, while you look to them for love. If you change your mindset, by renouncing your feelings and declaring your faith, then you are looking to Christ, and no matter what fiery dart the enemy sends your way, you will stand victoriously and be more than a conqueror. You won’t need people’s sympathy or validation. You will know who and whose you are! You will know that you’re a child of the GREAT I AM. You will know that the weapons may form, but they will not prosper, in Jesus name. It’s a mindset thing, folks. Stop looking to people to pull you out the pit when you’re down and out, or you’ll end up being disappointed every single time. God is our Father, and we were created to look to Him. Other people have their own problems. We’re all dealing with something. It’s selfish to put your happiness and security in the hands of another human being. Stop thinking of only yourself, especially when you’re going through, because that’s how your problems consume you. Think of the Kingdom of God. Even at your worse, be a willing vessel to God, and allow Him to use you. Listen, it’s nice to have people in our lives who has our backs, but that doesn’t mean you should make them your god, or constantly burden them with your problems. Jesus said, in Matthew 11:28, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Did you hear that? HE, will give you rest, after all, that’s what your soul really needs when you’re burdened. You need rest. Not attention from people. That can destroy you, because again, not all attention is good attention. Not all attention is beneficial, some is only around to keep you down, stuck and in a victim’s mindset. You will never reach your destiny if you live your life believing that you’re already defeated. Go to God, and go with a sincere heart, then watch how every one of your needs are met. He never disappoints those who trust Him. He alone is God. Don’t allow a lie someone told you about yourself, or a horrible past, a current situation or previous disappointment, cause you to look to another human being(s) for validation. Look to God.
Matthew 6:33 (NLT)
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
